What are you most proud of? I folded these 7 blocks into and drawer until I could afford or aquire the material to make it into a quilt. Surgery at the hospital happened on August 29th, 2012. After leaving the hospital following my surgery on August 31st, 2012, before laeaving the city, I went to the quilting store and purchased the material to finish this quilt. I used gift money from a freind put in a get well card, with instructions to purchase something for myself. I wanted to finish this quilt for our 19th aniversary on December 28th, 2012. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I embroidered a signiture on the right bottom corner. I appicaed left over rose material shaped as leaves on the back. to finish the back. I hand quilted on the quilting frame a rose pattern starting at each block center and radiating out into circles intersecting eah other. The center rose on the front in the joining strip matches the center of the block on the back and is also quilted with a rose pattern radiating out to a circle intersecting the other circles. Enjoy the journey and take your time.
